Game On - Scottish Street Rugby

G4S UK is the principal sponsor of Scottish Rugby’s Street Rugby initiative Game On with a three–year, six–figure investment

This community programme, which received a cross–party commendation at the Scottish Parliament, aims to increase participation in rugby and reduce anti–social behaviour and crime in targeted areas by engaging 4,500 disengaged and disadvantaged teens and young adults from across Scotland.

Both G4S and Scottish Rugby firmly believe that sport can play a powerful role in being the catalyst to improving the quality of life for young people in communities across Scotland. Rugby can offer youngsters potentially life–changing opportunities to enhance their education and skills; improve their confidence, health and wellbeing; develop respect for themselves and others; and build stronger and safer communities.

Commenting on the programme and G4S’ involvement, Colin Thomson, Scottish Rugby’s head of community rugby, said: “We believe that Street Rugby can play a major role in helping young Scots to become healthier, safer and stronger while increasing the opportunities for young Scots to play rugby – especially those in disadvantaged areas.”
